Here's another update on Noah Hayward, David & Katie's son. They just returned from furlough and are now heading back to the states for an undetermined length of time. The trip is exceedingly grueling this time of year (temps around 104, dust everywhere, millions of potholes in the roads, pedestrians wanting to hitch rides at roadside stations.) Noah has been ill for over a month, and just had surgery! I know the family will appreciate your prayers for an uneventful trip!! Thank you SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!
Still not our June prayer letter 🙂

Hello again, our dear friends,
We wanted to let you know that it has been decided that we should travel back to the US for Noah’s care and surgery. In piecing together information after our recent experience at the Kankan hospital, we understand that Noah has an abscessed appendix, which requires more involved care and surgery than the average appendectomy. We have gone into sudden pack-up-our-house-that-we-just-moved-into mode as we don’t know how long we’ll be gone, and we have tickets to fly out of Bamako late Monday night and arrive Tuesday night in Charlotte, NC where SIM’s US headquarters are.
SIM is providing amazing support for our family in so many ways and they have already lined up housing and a vehicle and we know which hospital we’ll head to in Charlotte once we get there. In the meantime, Noah is finishing his antibiotics, eating well, and doing great.
Our main prayer requests at this point are that Noah would hold steady until we are in Charlotte, that each one in our family would continue to know God’s care for us day by day, and that He will give strength in our weariness as being on the other side of this crisis still feels far away. Please pray especially for the beastly journey of driving across the border Monday morning and a day of car travel before we begin our 24 hours of air travel, that there would be no trouble at the border, no car trouble and no covid complications.
Thank you all SOOOO much for upholding us in this time.
In His perfect, matchless, competent and faithful care,
David & Katie

4 Prayer Request: Apologies for the novel. Thank you for your prayers. Your time and considerations are much appreciated.
1.) Prayer request for a private matter. Specifically, prayer for discernment and wisdom in addressing a matter in a way that is gentle and restorative in nature.
2.) Prayer request that God would send us an older Godly buisnessman in the area that can/would act as a mentor for Ruth and I in our realestate company. Specifically, prayer that this individual would have a minimum of 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur and/or buisness owner. Ideally, this person would be able to speak into our lives and real estate buisness from the lense of scripture as we seek to scale and expand for the right reasons.
3.) Prayer request for our Safety Team Ministry at church. Specifically, prayer that God would send us more volunteers to help the team become fully staffed. Prayer that the team would be more than a safety team and that it becomes a place where people have an opportunity to serve others and encourage others God's way. Prayer for growth and faithfulness to permeate this ministry as we move into the future.
4.) Prayer that buisness would pick up for us to a degree that allows me to step away from my engineering role in a way that allows me to still provide for my family properly while allowing for the pursuit of a nonprofit child adoption ministry funded by the company.

quick, urgent prayer request:
3:23 PM (6 hours ago)
Hello dear friends,
Stay tuned for our June prayer letter in the next week or two. In the meantime, we covet your prayers for Noah. He got sick again on Sunday, same symptoms that brought on last month’s evacuation. Mainly because of his inability to eat more than a few bites at a time, we had been planning to travel to Bamako tomorrow morning (Friday) to seek further testing. This afternoon (Thursday), his abdominal pain localized and took a sudden turn for the worse. We ended up at the Kankan hospital tonight and the surgeon on duty all but confirmed appendicitis. They pumped Noah full of paracetamol (Tylenol) and some antibiotic and sent him home for the night as they aren’t able to do an ultrasound until the morning. We are to return to the Kankan hospital at 9am tomorrow (Friday) for further testing and, we assume, an appendectomy.
Please pray for good, gentle, and clean care at the hospital tomorrow. Pray for clarity, wisdom, and compassion to rule over Noah’s medical care. Ask for Jesus’ protection over him, and that His hand would bring healing to Noah’s body. Pray too for peace for all in our family, and especially for Noah who is hurting and tired and thus much more fearful than his usual courageous self.
You can also praise God with us for a servant-hearted Guinean friend with connections at the hospital, and for caring and prayerful teammates and colleagues helping us through this!
In HIS care,
Katie & David
David & Katie Hayward are serving with the same mission in the same location where Bryan and I were in the Republic of Guinea. It's an all day drive on very bumpy roads in terrible heat this time of year. While the Kankan hospital is normally avoided at all costs, traveling with acute appendicitis is out of the question. PLEASE PRAY for wisdom, sterile conditions and that God would supernaturally guide the hands of the surgeon!! David & Katie have 4 children and Noah is their second child.

Hi Southwest i just needed to get something off my chest lately it has been hitting me more and more how rough my life is. I did everything i possibly could when i got saved at 26 to show GOD how grateful i was for his love and sacrifice and my life became 100% better, learning to walk as a sober person, learning to forgive and learning how the LORD thought about things. Then came the test. I tried my best but it was very rough, then came the pandemic and now i have nothing left except you and i am sure i will ruin that one day i can't take it anymore i do not know what i will do but i am not going to act like everything is all right because it is not. It is breaking my heart! GOD richly bless you.

There are individuals that have been harassing me and monitoring my every move. This situation has been very overwhelming causing me anxiety attacks. These individuals have been doing this to me for a long time and they will not leave me alone. May you please pray that the Lord will intervene in this situation and bring it to an end.
